Pretend with me

I found the Key to Ibsen's light.
The fiction flight, of reunite.
And here I walk you by my side.
It is only the truth I hide.

I've dreamed of you in absentee,
In dull and dreary ennui.
And wish to close that chasm door
And fly above that canyons floor.

I would a shadow of a dream,
A thought that floats upon a stream.
And challenge you to meet me there,
Like Ibsen in his love affair.

You think me sad a little mad?
You think I need a loony pad?
I do not want to frighten you.
It's only this, that I can do.

Pretend we are the same of age.
Pretend we walk a different stage.
Pretend I am your knight in true.
Pretend the sky and world are new.

And in this pretenders' reckon.
We will ignite, every beckon.

I liked it too! The second-to-last verse was my favorite.

Balladeer,
Sigh or Sy It's both I hear.
And your grace does bring a tear.

Elizabeth and Pepper on Snow in summer.
You charm my days
And balm my nights
In so many ways.
Thank you all.
